OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

When I received the Avido All-In-One, I expected a nice flashlight for my bike with some extra bells and whistles.  What I didn’t expect was a really fun day trying it out. The Avido All-In-One comes nicely packaged, as we expect of all our toys now.  The package contains the Avido All-In-One with an LED [...]

I'm mostly a recreational rider, but I can image that for those of you who ride your bicycles more than a couple of miles, you feel just how stiff you and your bike are. The ShockStop is a shock absorbing stem that fits between your handlebars and the front frame of your bike. The stem [...]

pure-fix-cyclces-zulu

As a kid, I loved almost all things glow-in-the-dark. The Zulu bicycle from Pure Fix Cycles is a glow-in-the-dark bicycle that I would have loved to have owned. The paint is solar-activated and just one hour in the sun will give you about one hour of nighttime glow. This is a single speed bicycle that [...]

FireFly Running & Biking Safety Light Spurs

Biking and running are two of the most popular fitness activities around. Now most folks do their outdoor activities during regular daylight hours, but if you are like me and live in the desert, that 4pm walk ain't happening in the summer. Although I have no issues with walking late at night or early in [...]

upright-bike-stand

We've shown you a couple of bike racks that let you store your bike on the wall to free up space on the floor, but those require you to lift your bike up to the hook.  If you have a ultra-light, high-tech bike, that's maybe not so bad, but not everyone has the lightweight bikes. [...]

Securing your bike when you’re out and about is perhaps the first thing a bike owner has to confront, once they’ve bought the bike and a helmet. As soon as you arrive at the post office, drugstore, or coffee shop on your first ride, you get off, and realize you’ll have to prevent someone else [...]

podiumskinsuits-tron

I'm not much of a cyclist myself, but I am a big fan of the "Tron" films, particularly the newer "Tron: Legacy." The futuristic costumes worn by the characters inside their imaginary computer reality were way cool. When I randomly stumbled onto this Tron-Inspired Cycling Skinsuit from Podium Cycling, I had to share it. Due [...]

The LifeBEAM bicycling helmet has an all weather compatible "advanced optical" sensor in the helmet to collect data on your heart rate, calories and performance.

brainstorm-bikejersey-2

Last fall I purchased a road bike so I could start getting my stamina up for my next belt test in karate. After procrastinating for a little over half a year, I finally started riding. Normally when I go out I am in my biking shorts and some sort of t-shirt, since I always thought [...]

monkeylight 00

My son finally took up an interest in learning to ride a bike, so I've been looking into ways to increase visibility.  Bright clothing and reflectors are important, but a wild array of LED lights on the wheel?  This could be hard to ignore! (All images can be clicked for a full size image) What [...]

biking-glowes-kit-2

Bicycles don’t usually come with lights on them, and the add-on kits are usually either reflectors or lights that just alert drivers that someone is cycling in front of them.  During the day, you can use the hand signals you learned in driver’s ed classes to indicate when you will be making a turn, but [...]

Some time ago, Kingsley Fiegert was out riding his bicycle when someone in a passing car leaned out and shot him with a slingshot.  Kingsley was understandably in shock and in a great deal of pain, and he didn't have the presence of mind to note the car's license plate.  Kingsley and his business partner, Andrew Hagen, [...]

If you're a bike commuter, you know how a sudden rainstorm can wreck your day.  If your bike doesn't have a rear fender, you can end up with mud, water, or road grease sprayed up the back of your clothing - not how you want to show up for a meeting or your work day. [...]

My daughter is going to college in the fall, and that means we're making lists of things she'll need to take with her.  She's thinking about taking a bike for the trek from the freshman dorms to her classes, and that means she'll need a bike lock.  A lock like the Skylock would make her [...]
